Lyrics:

The stones I buried under the mattress, they creak through the night
I’ve kept them all for a long time, loving and hating them at the same time

Tears wash but misery is amassed
It’s suppose to be lighter, but I’m heavier than ever

I’ll catch a bird and fly w/ it
Away from troubles, away from the wet pages
I’ll throw the stones one by one
I won’t pick them up
My smile is opening up
I’ll sleep soundly tonight

The stones, they’re baggage, they’re nothing but garbage
I knew going out for air is good but I can’t get up, my drive has stopped

Tears wash but my face looked crushed
I thought it doesn’t get better but it’s true it’s not forever

I’ll catch a bird and fly w/ it
Away from troubles, away from the wet pages
I’ll throw the stones one by one
I won’t pick them up
My smile is opening up
I’ll sleep soundly tonight

Don’t pick them up
The days of the past shouldn’t again turn up
Loosen up
The noise of the past
has been put to a stop

I’ll catch a bird and fly w/ it
Away from troubles, away from the wet pages
I’ll throw the stones one by one
I won’t pick them up
I will say goodbye
I will smile
And throw it all away

Wings For Fire

I broke my bones to numb the pain
I bit my lip to stay awake
I crossed the line to hope, to live
But you pushed me off the cliff

You are my sea of fire
You are my sea of fire
You clipped my wings

I moved my things for a change of phase
But I found myself looking for your face
Now you’re gone and I’m not the same
Somehow, I think it’s for the best

You are my sea of fire
You are my sea of fire
You clipped my wings

Video – Save Me (Original Song)

Everyone at some point felt they needed to be saved by a person they value so much. Once you’re okay, you would probably realize the only person you should have just cried for help is yourself, but it does not work that way. We can’t always know what to do in a crisis. I wrote this two months ago as a poem but decided to turn it into a more mainstream medium that I can hum to and touch people who aren’t accustomed to liking letters on pages.

P.S. Pardon my guitar skills. It’s in a developing stage.

Your Own Best Years

Your Own Best Years

Your Own Best Years

Lyrics, vocals and guitar accompaniment by Reynaldo D. Pagsolingan Jr.

The arms I touch
Will grow like trees
I’ll name them Juan
The pictures Ive seen
They’ll come alive
I will take my own

Dreams, a home

Roaring like a tiger
Jumping like grasshoppers
Let’s make the years the best of ’em
The best of ’em
The best of ’em

My eyes and its tears
Wil fade sometime
I will not let you notice
The world we live in
We’ll be a part of it
We’ll be just like the dead leaves

Dreams, a home

Roaring like a tiger
Jumping like grasshoppers
Let’s make the years the best of ’em
The best of ’em
The best of ’em
